Typologies: Women Drinkers Are More Diverse Than Men Drinkers

People drink alcohol for a number of reasons. This study focused on understanding why people drink and the consequences of their drinking.

Second, it investigated the relations among drinker types and harms experienced, and considered their policy implications.
